EMBL champions for the third successive year, Erks lost their first game at home for 2 years against an Army team still competing with 3 other teams for the runners up league spot.
Six man Erks were all out of sorts from the start quickly going behind 9 - 2. Despite pulling the lead back to single figures on a number of occasions, the Army held a double digit lead for most of the game and were deserved winners.
Cardinals bench player "H" will probably kick himself for his one sided refereeing performance as he thought he was larging it with his "T"'s, and ensuring all players had their shirts tucked in; but the result has probably meant Cardinals season is now over as they won't make the playoffs. Well done "H" - tough game.
Declan McCusker 6, Mark Denchfield 14, Lee "Twinkle Toes" Atkinson 2, Martin Overare 14, John Powell 6, Dave "Garbage" Churches 22.
